And the sun shone on the book sale!

Many thanks must go to Coralie and her friends for holding another book/bric-a-brac sale under the Market House this morning, to raise funds for our school project.

The sun shone, lots of bargains to be had and another super amount of money has been raised.


It coincided brilliantly with a Minchinhampton Local History Group  minch-historical-group-logo event in the Market House.  There, Di Wall (from the Group) chatted to me about our project and has volunteered to come into school to talk to the classes about the time periods the pupils will be writing about.  This will be a fabulous opportunity for the children to ask lots of questions and learn more about the history of our town.

Village group raise money for our project

The lovely Coralie at Stafford Cottage, and her friends, have got together and raised some money for our book project, by having a second-hand book sale in the Undercroft at the Market House.

And if that is not enough, she tells me that they are going to be holding another one, on 15th October.  I have no more details yet, but feel free to call in at Stafford Cottage, or see posters around the village.

All money raised is most welcome, and will be put to very good use for the illustrating and writing of the project.
